the only truth I know is my own experience

Who wants money? July 18, 2009

“Me!” would be probably the first reaction of all most of the people.

Do you really want money? – if even now the answer is ” yes” then you are already a millionaire.

The truth is, only a tiny percent of mankind  really wants money and these are the same people who own great material riches. I talked to some people who know personally the so-called Russian oligarchs (people who became incredibly rich and influential  in a short time) – they say that it is the love for money as object that has driven them all to becoming so rich.

The truth is that an average citizen of any country is not really interested in money. Sure, no one would mind comforts and other benefits that money brings with. However it is a very seldom case that someone is interested in possessing huge sums of money as such. And the one who is obsessed with the idea usually gets it!

Why this? (more…)

 

Why only few people are good at sales? July 1, 2008

Two questions:

1. why it is the sales manager who are the best paid and most desirable?

2. why there is so much job-hopping in sales? Why so many start and give up? And why does the best salesmen become best-sellers themselves?

I was facing this phenomenon for some time and came to a interesting conclusion to sell things is not a natural thing for most of the people! Most of us have a big difficulty already with selling “themselves” – what to say about selling products/ideas/stuff… It is not by chance that sales is often being labeled as a “hard” job.

The deeper reason for it  – my own theory, may be totally wrong – I see it in the general consumerisation. Our real needs are not that many. Most of the things being forced on us  we actually don’t need. If a human being would only buy what he/she needs – there is no need to sell it aggressively: just open a shop and stay behind the bar. Isn`t it so? (more…)
